How old was your child when

......s/he started using deodorant? My sd was 6 years old (she's 7 now)....and while I feel that's a bit young, that happened to be when she started to have body odor.

Bm tends to ignore it....(maybe in denial). Every time I pick her up from school she smells like a over-active teenager. I've talked to her about what's going on with her body and why it's important to take regular baths/showers and use deodorant, but she needs support at home as well.

Does your child use deodorant....and if so, how old were they they when they started using it?

my dd8 just started using it, when she remembers, this year. she tends to have heavy b.o. also. but as i started my period at age 9, i am thinking she might hit puberty earlier as well.

Mine are 8 and 9. They both started at 7. Sorry but they were smelly, sweaty kids.

 DD is 5 and we haven't gotten there yet. I have no clue what the right age is. But my sons started at about 9 or 10
